Yea i was thinking about that today reading this thread. Three years ago Cugel spent so much time telling everyone how Brock sucked and Elway would let him walk because a team was going to pay him Matt Flynn money. Now, he is changing his tune and thinking Brock is awesome and should of been overpaid. Methinks Cugel just likes to argue for the sake of arguing. lol

So, we're down to make excuses for the Butt-fumbler now?

I can't whip up any enthusiasm for Mark Sanchez, but we'll have to wait for the regular season to see for sure.

What I do know for sure is that Broncos fans are going to be sitting in the stadium on Sundays this season watching Sanchez play, and checking their cell-phones ever quarter to get updates from Houston Texans games to see what Brock Osweiler is doing for the Texans.

If Osweiler sucks and his team loses, "and there was much rejoicing."

8750

If plays well and leads the Texans into the playoffs, especially if he beats the Broncos there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

my spam cant save you now. You are own your own

When Osweiler was drafted Cugel was one of those saying that he was drafted because he's Jr's BFF, iirc, I do remember him telling anybody that would like to see him finally play was stupid.

Joel was the one saying that the only reason Elway drafted Os was because he was Jr's friend. Elway doesn't know how to separate business from personal, ya know. Joel cried over and over about that.

Cugal said that Elway showed his hand on how bad he thought Brock was by not putting him in the lineup and by not extending his contract.

Completely totally wrong! I said back in 2012 said Elway made a mistake using his 2nd round draft pick on Osweiler because Manning was going to play for 4 or 5 years. Everybody mocked me and said "maybe 2 seasons tops." Turns out I was right there because Manning played throughout Osweiler's entire 4 year contract.

As for saying I criticized Elway for not paying Osweiler $72 M that's just plain stupid. That would be crazy. He's NOT worth $72M after 7 starts and no way should Elway have matched the Texans offer. In fact, even if he had offered to match the $18M a year offer, the Texans would just have offered more - as their owner confirmed. So it would have cost MORE than $72 M and who knows how much? $19M a year? $20M? How insanely high would they go when their owner said "we were determined to do whatever it took to get the deal done?"

I criticized Elway for not locking up Osweiler back in July 2015 when he could have re-signed him for a backup QB salary because Osweiler had never started a game in the NFL and would only be worth backup money at that point. Nor was there any reason to believe that he would start in 2015 since Manning had never missed a start in his 17 year NFL career except for 2011 when he had the neck surgeries. And if he hadn't ever started he wouldn't be worth starter money to anybody.

I got criticized endlessly by incredibly stupid and ignorant people who insisted he wouldn't have signed. If he had refused and Manning had NOT got hurt he would have LOST money rather than gained any by becoming a UFA.

$5M in 2015 + $6M in 2016 = $11M guaranteed in 2015 is better than $1M and who knows what? $7 or maybe $8M in 2016, because he had no experience in the NFL.

As an example of what backup QBs get: Chase Daniel: Chase Daniel signed a 3 year, $21,000,000 contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, including a $6,000,000 signing bonus, $12,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $7,000,000. In 2016, Daniel will earn a base salary of $1,000,000, a signing bonus of $3,000,000 and a roster bonus of $3,000,000. Daniel has a cap hit of $5,000,000 while his dead money value is $12,000,000.

$5M in 2016 & $7M in 2016. $12M guaranteed. Almost exactly what I said Brock would have gotten, because that's what NFL experts were saying back in July 2015 he was worth.

Now all the experts like Troy Renk the Broncos Insider are saying the same thing I've been saying and getting pointlessly attacked for - Elway's mistake was in waiting too long to make Osweiler an offer.

They should have locked him up for 2016 for a lower amount so they could evaluate him for a year and see if they really wanted to commit $64M to him and not offered him $30M guaranteed on the basis of 7 games.

They waited until too late to make their offer. By the time they tried to negotiate the season was done and he was almost a FA. TOO LATE!

Wrong again. I said, and it's true, that the reason he drafted Osweiler ahead of his favorite QB in that draft, Brandon Weeden, was because Osweiler was only 21 and Weeden was about 26 and by the time Manning retired he'd be too old. (Also too sucky it turned out).

It's been widely reported that Elway became interested in Osweiler after his son became friends with him. But, they would still have looked at all his tape before drafting him of course and would have to be convinced that he would work out.

I got in endless arguments with people who insisted that Peyton Manning was only going to play for 1 or 2 seasons. I said he'd play 4 or 5. In October 2014 he said "of course" he intended to play out his contract - through 2016. Then he got hurt. And hurt again in 2015 and things changed including being forced into the Kubiak system which he didn't like.

Yet he still almost came back for another season despite knowing the Broncos were going to release rather than pay him. If he hadn't been injured so much and struggled in the system he might very well have come back for his last season.

So now we are back to the narrative that Brock would have magically resigned for backup QB money a year ago even though he was going to be a free agent, even though that has been completely shot to hell. Holy shit man. :tsk:

Osweiler would simply have been the best option for 2016, while they still have DeMarcus Ware playing in his last NFL season. The defense will never be as good after he retires next year.

That's all. And only if Brock's salary were reasonable - which $18M a year is not. I still think he's not a top 10 QB and never will be. I could be wrong but that's what I think.

Exactly right because it's true and has been stated by numerous NFL experts.

Almost NO player wants to wait and play out their entire contract. What if they get hurt and their value declines radically? What if the market isn't as good as they think? What if they just get into a couple of games and don't play well and their market value plummets?

No way in HELL Osweiler or any other player would want to take that risk, when they could LOSE money instead of getting a big signing bonus.


You act like he had a crystal ball and could see "OK, Peyton is going to get hurt and miss 7 games for the first time in 4 years he's missed a game, and I'm going to play well enough so I get a huge pay-day, and I don't want to return to the Broncos so I won't take their perfectly reasonable offer and get $5M right now instead of $1M for 2015. OK."

Osweiler's agent went on 104.3 The Fan and said the Broncos only made an offer when Osweiler was about to become a FA. That was too late. At that point he only had a short time to wait. There was NO offer made in July 2015!

NOBODY predicted the stuff that happened. That's why Elway didn't make the offer in 2015. He thought he could low-ball Osweiler and there was no hurry. He could make an offer in January 2016 and Osweiler would have no better offer. It took a bunch of crazy circumstances to make Osweiler a $72M QB.

But you don't take that risk. That's what Elway did wrong.

You really think Osweiler was predicting he was going to get a huge contract back in July 2015? When nobody in the NFL would have given him starter money? You should listen to yourself. Cause what you said makes no sense at all.

Why would any QB, picked in the 2nd round, after sitting for 3 years, knowing that the QB ahead of you is non his last legs, extend your contract for peanuts when you are going to be a highly sought after FA even if you DONT get any playing time? He was going to get paid "starter money" regardless dipshit, take a look around the league. His agent would have laughed hysterically at a cheap offer from Denver a year ago, and rightfully so. Not to mention money clearly doesn't matter to Oz right? This has been spelled out for you, by many different posters. Earth to numbnuts, just because Denver didn't make an offer doesn't mean in any way shape or form Oz would have accepted it, but feel free to spin spin spin like you always do.

Even when Kirk Cousins was barely proven, his trade worth was around a first round pick or two second rounders. I'm not sure what that 'worth' would translate into via salary, but it would be a hefty sum. Point being if you have talent, and you haven't tanked, teams will give you a lot of money. FFS, Tyrod Taylor is currently a viable starter in the NFL.

Where do you get the idea that Elway liked Weedon? I don't recall Elway ever saying anything abou liking Weedon at any time. You also insisted for the four years that Osweiler sat on the bench that Elway didn't really care for Osweiler and couldn't wait to get rid of him One of the reasons you gave for Elway not liking Osweiler was the fact he wasn't playing, and that just doesn't make much sense to me especially when the guy ahead of him was Manning.

I don't remember you getting into endless arguments about how long Manning would play but I do know that most people thought he would play about four more years. As far as the reports about Manning considering a return for 2016 it doesn't matter because I think it would been with Broncos.

KUSA - Those ornate hallways were made for talking.

The Denver Broncos contingent of Joe Ellis, John Elway and Gary Kubiak fly out Saturday for the NFL owners meetings that will be held at the Boca Raton Resort in Boca Raton, Florida.
Reporters hiding behind plants will hope to catch Elway, the Broncos’ general manager, running into San Francisco 49ers’ colleague Trent Baalke.

Elway and Baalke have formed a friendship at these owners meetings in recent years. It’s how the Broncos and 49ers wound up practicing against each other last summer.

This time, Elway and Baalke have more important business to discuss: Colin Kaepernick. The talented if too often inaccurate passing quarterback is coming off two terrific seasons and two disappointing seasons, in that order, with the 49ers.

Kaepernick was spotted by several traveling tipsters Friday night arriving at the Denver International Airport. Don’t get too worked up. Kaepernick has been rehabbing a variety of surgically repaired injuries – a torn left labrum, torn ligaments in his right thumb and a left knee scope – at the Steadman Sports Clinic in Vail. None of those injuries are expected to prevent him from participating in the organized team activities (OTAs) that begin in late-May.

Good to hear John didn't want RGIII, but I think the only people thinking McCown is a possibility are those that are simply trying to figure out if McCown sticks with Cleveland now. I can't see the Broncos making a move for him , at all, as he wouldn't provide anything that we don't already have.

Right, says the guy who says Mike Shanahan and his 1 playoff win since 1998 is still among the best NFL coaches in the NFL, it would be cool to get 2 SuperBowls in the next 4 years, maybe, instead of waiting 4 years. John Elway has been among the best in the NFL at assembling a great team. I think saying he couldn't get another win before 4 years is kind of selling him short. He might not. But he also might get 2. He's built a pretty dam good defense right now.

and even the year he was benched we had Rod Smith, Brandon Marshall on the outside. How is that less than all the 'world talent' we have now?

Uhmmm...well, not really.

2003 was his best offense in terms of skill. It was Portis and Sharpe's last year. McCafferey was an absolute shell of himself after his broken leg and caught like 20 passes.
2004 his RB's were the almighty Droiughns and Griffith show. This was the year we had some clown named Jeb Putzier as the starting TE for a handful of years. HIS wr's were Lelie, Smith, and some bust named Darius Watts.
2005......shit. I'm not even going to waste my time. A diminished 35 year old Rod Smith and Mike Anderson were really it.

Brandon Marshall came in with Jay Cutler. WIth the benefit of hindsight, those teams were really void of talent.

So anyways, back to the original argument.

I'm not going to freak out over Mark Sanchez, because like everyone said, Elway knows what he's doing. But Ryan Fitzgerald, or whatever his name is, almost brought the godforsaken Jets to the playoffs with 10 wins, he's old, he can fill a gap for 2 years, and if he can win 10 games with the shitty Jets, he might just win 12 with the Broncos.

:lol:

Why would any QB, picked in the 2nd round, after sitting for 3 years, knowing that the QB ahead of you is non his last legs, extend your contract for peanuts when you are going to be a highly sought after FA even if you DONT get any playing time? He was going to get paid "starter money" regardless dipshit, take a look around the league. His agent would have laughed hysterically at a cheap offer from Denver a year ago, and rightfully so. Not to mention money clearly doesn't matter to Oz right? This has been spelled out for you, by many different posters. Earth to numbnuts, just because Denver didn't make an offer doesn't mean in any way shape or form Oz would have accepted it, but feel free to spin spin spin like you always do.

YOu're absolutely FULL of crap! You're stating as FACT, what you have no idea about!


D-Mack: "Al, what do you think about the off-season?"

Alfred Williams: "I like the [new signings of the] off-season now. I still think we could have done all of these deals [Okung, Stephenson] and still had Brock Osweiler under contract for under $10,000,000 [for 2016]."

D-Mack: "Oh, of course, there's no doubt about it! No doubt about it. They blew that. They waited way too long."

Alfred Williams: "Yeah. So, right now it's a mixed bag off-season. We're really going to have to wait until the draft to judge this off-season."

The Drive, Hour 1, 3-21-16 (http://www.1043thefan.com/the-drive/)

They didn't even feel the need to discuss that at length. It's just stated as an obvious fact that everybody knows.

He wasn't going to get starter money if he never started, because nobody could know until they saw him play in the regular season what he could do.

But, feel free to continue to call me stupid names like "dipshit" to prove your point!

Every expert knows and many have now stated exactly what you deny. That the Broncos could have signed Osweiler to an extended contract in July 2015, but they waited too long. By the time they made him an $11M offer he was nearly a FA and had been benched and was mad at the Broncos. At that point he's only got to wait a month or so to become an UFA and his value had sky rocketed due to the stated interest of the Texans and other teams.

This is COMMON KNOWLEDGE. Period.

And he wants $18M because he had a better season than Osweiler, even though he's 33 years old. He's in a contract impasse with the Jets because they want to pay him under $12M and the two sides are way apart.

He'll have to come down from his $18M demand, but how far? $15M? $14? That's still too high for the Broncos.

If he came down to $12M he'd just re-sign with the Jets. Ryan Fitzpatrick is not coming here.

If Oz left because he wanted to get out of Manning and Elway's shadow, why would he have resigned in the first place? I don't think that was the sole reason Brock left, the money is always going to outweigh just about anything else, but it's a hard thing for me to believe that we 'know' Brock would or wouldn't have taken the deal. With that being said, if Elway offered Brock 5-6 million per season in the past, and we know those were tight salary cap seasons, it might have caused Denver to lose out on some of its other players. The fans would be been pissed off, rightfully so, and the only thing that would placate us would be if we knew that Brock was going to be a stud.

We don't even know that now. I think both parties went through separate ways, and that it was defensible.

Right now we're finding out how hard it is to build a great team and THEN find a QB, like so many wanted to do in 2012. Remember that? "Don't sign Manning cause they're not gonna do shit in the 2-3 year window".

The Broncos have everything, Imo, they're looking more balanced on paper than after the (Suck it) WORLD Championship. OL is looking much better, they have receivers, RB and the defense should still be strong.

As much as I like the notion of Sanchez he's probably thoroughly underwhelming without the benefit of Orange colored glasses.

Just to add to this, I'm not saying you don't need a good QB. Obviously that's priority #1. But it's a bit of an exaggeration to say winning with defense is a 1 in 15 year thing. If you count those Giants teams, it's closer to about 1 in 3 years.

Nah, the Giants teams were not even in the same hemisphere as the other teams you mentioned. The Giants simply got hot at the right time and in one of the SB's if Eli had not made the play of his life they would of lost the first SB against the Pats. The other defenses absolutely shut down the best offenses in those SB's and it wasnt even close. MO is entirely correct here, you need a Elite QB more times than not to get to the SB and win it but on occasion if you have the perfect defense you can steal one which is what Denver did last year. Sanchez will be adequate but wont be the longterm answer at QB until we can find that gem that we are looking for.

Ideally, a team wants/needs a franchise QB to build around, but as you said, there aren't that many that truly reach the elite level. If you are a good team, and getting draft picks routinely in the high teens to high twenties, and when you are really good, picks of 31 or 32, then it really reduces any chance to get an elite QB unless you get lucky on a QB that isn't "elite" coming out of college.

McDaniels provided the Broncos with one top 10 pick, and the Broncos got an elite pass rusher. How many top ten picks have the Broncos had in the last decade (not to mention the entire Bowlen era)?

So, that means you either get lucky on a QB at the end of the first or later in the draft, or you make a trade like Shanahan did in Washington to get RGIII and hope and pray that the guys you mortgaged the franchise for is truly elite. In Washington's case, they only had to move up four spots, and it cost them their 6th round pick (in exchange for the Ram's 2nd), plus their first round picks the next two years, plus another 2nd or so. For the Broncos, almost always drafting towards the end of the first round, it might take another first, or who knows what to move from 31 to 2nd or 4th or first or whatever it takes to get an elite QB, other than going the "pick and pray" route on non top 10 QBs.

It's hard to be a winning team and draft an elite QB. Elite QBs are typically drafted by crappy teams, and if they are lucky, the team builds a solid team around them.

My complaint was that they brought back a QB that obviously couldn't play any more. So it had more to do with the FO than anything else. It was time to start thinking about the future.

Let me ask you a question...what do you think the odds are that Brock would have been extended at a reasonable price last year if they had cut bait with 18 before the season started?

I think Sanchez can at least be as "good" as what we put out last year.

That being said...that is not what I want. I like Sanchez being here as a capable backup vet, but I don't want to settle for scoring a TD and a number of field goals and let the defense win it just by holding on. The defense has to play lights out every game for that to happen.

I am not asking for a top 5 QB but scoring more than 20 per game would be nice.

I know you weren't talking about career. I'm just curious as to why we're so on the bandwagon for a quarterback who's best year was possibly slightly better than the worst quarterbacking year in 20 seasons for the Broncos?

I mean, I like the idea of Sanchez finally finding his spot, like Plummer, but let's not have delusions of grandeur.

If Sanchez is starter I don't think he's be anything more than a serviceable place holder. I doubt Elway sees him as anything more than that, if he does he has funny way of going about it.

That is true, baring injuries this OLine should be much better than the one we carted out last year. If Sanchez can make them at least respect the pass so they are not just sticking everyone in the box like they often did with Manning, we may at least have a top notch run game.

It is easy to forget that before Plummer got here his last year in Arizona he threw 18 TDs and 20 ints and 53% completion. Once he got here, while not exactly a top QB, his offense did move the chains so who knows...maybe Mark can be competent once he gets here too.

While watching this whole QB scenario play out, I'm willing to just roll with Sanchez this season. Kaepernick is damaged goods and can't beat teams from the pocket. All the rest of the available QB's out there are the same guy IMO. We have 10 picks in the draft and not all 10 will make the team. Use what it takes (picks and Clady) to move up and select a guy like Lynch. He's the next best passing QB after Wentz and is athletic enough to run Kubes' system.

I would like to see Denver sporting its own home grown player at the position next season and for the long term.

You've just stated Elway's theory in acquiring Mark Sanchez.

They are probably not trading up in the first round though, first because it's hideously expensive and difficult, and also because they are not desperate for a QB to start immediately, so they can take a project like they did with Osweiler.

They can use Sanchez and take a look at Seimian for a year, then decide whether their 2nd or 3rd round rookie is ready to start yet.

I understand the theory, but Sanchez is bad. He might turn it around this year, and he might revamp his career as a journeyman type guy, so there's that. With that being said, the picks might be there to make a move. Depending on who we like, maybe we trade up to land approximately around the top ten. IDK, Cugel, part of it IS wishful thinking. Sanchez is not exciting as a player. Even when he was solid he proved that his mediocre arm was a liability. I''ll give him this: he has had some truly miserable moments on huge stages and rebounded from them, so toughness is something he possesses.

Trading up from #31 pick - worth 600 points, to #10 - 1300 points means giving up TWO #1 picks.

And as former Player Personnel Director Chris Landry explained on air yesterday, normally teams in the top 10 don't want to trade "all the way down from #1 to #15" (let alone #31). What they are really doing is trying to land a player they like in the top 5 or 10, but don't want to pay top 5 or 10 $ to. They think maybe the guy would be there a few spots later, but not 15 or 20 spots later.

So, they want to trade and move down, just not too far. Just look what it took the Jets to move up to #5 from around #17 to draft Mark Sanchez!

From the Times in 2009:


In exchange for the fifth pick, the Jets gave up the 17th pick, their second-round selection and three players: defensive end Kenyon Coleman, safety Abram Elam and quarterback Brett Ratliff.

“Eric and I had a good relationship, and we continue to have a good relationship,” Tannenbaum said. “We talk. I think he did a really good job here. I expect him to do a great job there as well. We’re also really excited to have Rex [Ryan] right here. Eric [Mangini] is going to do what’s best for the Cleveland Browns, and we’re going to do what’s best for the Jets.”

Sanchez is the first quarterback the Jets have taken in the first round since Chad Pennington in 2000, and he will arrive with a reputation for having a better arm. The scouts also saw accuracy and mobility from Sanchez, but he made only 16 starts in his U.S.C. career, 13 of them last season. Trojans Coach Pete Carroll had indicated that Sanchez was not ready for the N.F.L.

Turns out Sanchez still is "not ready" for the N.F.L. And none of the guys in that transaction, Tannenbaum, Mangini or Rex Ryan still have their same jobs 6 years later.

I don't disagree with your information, but let's also be clear in that with the new salary rules trades are more common. This is also a quarterback we're talking about. If we see Elway pulling the trigger they truly believe in the young guy, and that should be exciting. In that sense we should WANT Denver to trade up and get a QB.

I was gonna throw this out there in another thread but it's been closed.

At the number the Broncos want Kap at and Patrick Willis average salary, that comes to about $15MM. Clady is about $10MM.

I'll throw Sanchez in there so this is not off topic, because imo Kap would make Sanchez a luxury, he's making about $5MM.

Sanchez is bringing the receivers out to CA for a QB camp this week:


As the Denver Broncos flirt with another quarterback, Sanchez is reminding his new team it already has a capable leader. Sanchez is holding his annual passing camp Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in Orange County, this time with Broncos receivers, tight ends, running backs and quarterback mate Trevor Siemian.

“It shows he wants to come in and get to know us before OTAs start,” Broncos receiver Bennie Fowler said Sunday afternoon from California. “I think it’s really good. It’s going to help us get off to a good start.”

Let Broncos general manager John Elway worry about trying to acquire Colin Kaepernick from the San Francisco 49ers. Sanchez will concentrate on what he can control, which is to get acclimated with his new teammates.

Sanchez held similar passing camps during his time with the Jets and Eagles. The passing camp with the Broncos is a bit earlier than usual as the team doesn’t begin its offseason workout program until April 18.

But Sanchez’ enthusiasm about leading the defending Super Bowl champs cannot be contained. The three-day session will include offensive whiteboard sessions followed by route-running and passing.

The Broncos’ administration and coaches have nothing to do with the passing camp. Sanchez will serve as camp organizer and offensive coordinator. He will take all his teammates out to dinner one night.

Peyton Manning held similar sessions in past offseasons with Broncos receivers at Duke University.

“It’ll be nice to get some work in,” Siemian said. “Mark set this whole thing up. He’s a good dude from everything I’ve been hearing.

LAGUNA HILLS, Calif Mark Sanchez wastes no time worrying about whether the Broncos will trade for San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Early Wednesday morning, he was too busy throwing punches, roundhouse kicks and performing tuck jumps while wearing a 40-pound weighted vest near his offseason hometown.

From the moment the Broncos acquired Sanchez "I still can't believe it," he said he has watched film and trained relentlessly to put himself in the best position to secure the starting quarterback job.

"Listen, I don't care who is there, what is going on right now. They are going to give me a fair shake, that's all I can ask for, a fair shot. I am good. Let's go. I will bet on myself and compete my butt off," Sanchez said before his workout. "I will be friendly and professional with whoever is there. But I want this bad. Really bad. I want what they experienced last year."

Sanchez, 29, has attempted to microwave his transition by spending time at the Broncos facility, even though he's not allowed to talk with the coaches. With the help of receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas, Sanchez put together a passing camp Broncos Beach at Mission Viejo High School to gain familiarity with his teammates. He knows nothing is guaranteed, but he wants to maximize his opportunity.

"One, it's just to be around each other. That's important. It sounds like they have that family atmosphere in Denver. They talk about the locker room and it sounds fun. It's because of stuff like this," Sanchez said. "They get together in the offseason, and make sacrifices with their time and their money and travel to do that. Emmanuel and Demaryius were awesome, saying, 'Let me call so and so.' They've been great."

I honestly believe the bad rap he had was due to having to play for Rex Ryan. I remember seeing Sanchez in interviews after a loss and he was biting his tongue. Rex Ryan creates more drama than there really is. Rex Ryan's big mouth is what amplified the expectations of Sanchez and the butt fumble happened. He and the Jets had a big ole target on their back leading up to that all because Rex Ryan doesn't know when to shut up.

He's away from that now and I think we all get to see a different side of him.

The Mark Sanchez comeback story has been written over and over in different forms since he was selected with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft.

If nothing else, the veteran quarterback has been forced to become a politician of sorts, though it isn't really his fault. His time in New York flamed out due to a constant shift in offensive theory, a deconstruction of a veteran offense and an executive staff that did not replenish the well with any first-round draft picks. Sanchez might have been a better player if his tenure was handled differently, and if he played for a different head coach.

"Coming to the Denver Broncos, this is a gift-wrapped opportunity. I believe in fate and destiny," Sanchez recently told The Denver Post. "There's no excuse. I need to take full advantage. There's nothing more important in my life than this."

Part of this feels rehearsed. Sanchez was brutally picked apart in New York for just about every aspect of his personality -- again, in no way was this his fault -- and so sound bites like these tend to be the safest and smartest way to go. It's what people want to hear. But Sanchez might be right about one thing: fate could be on his side.

from same article:


Sanchez, for his part, has improved since his time with the Jets. The largest knock on his game, decision making and accuracy, improved in some aspects under a better scheme in Philadelphia. Sanchez's completion percentage alone jumped from 54.3 percent to 64.1.

Kubiak's system also protects quarterbacks and focuses on the run. It can elevate play (clearly) even when the player behind center isn't at his best.

So maybe, after all the time we've spent writing about the Broncos' quarterbacking situation, the answer has been there all along. Maybe it really is a gift-wrapped opportunity.

It's looking more and more like he's the guy for next season as its making less and less sense for Denver to go QB in round 1 with Lynch long gone and now perhaps even Cook gone.

The chips just did not fall right this year at QB for Denver and I'd rather just go BPA across the board and accept its going to be Sanchez or perhaps Kaep.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- First impressions count, and according to wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, quarterback Mark Sanchez has excelled at them.

"A great impression," Sanders said when asked about the Broncos' newest quarterback Monday following the first day of team-organized offseason conditioning work and meetings with coaches.

For the next two months, the Broncos will go through four phases of the offseason program, culminating with organized team activities in Phases III and IV.

But Sanders, Sanchez and other skill-position players got a head start two weeks ago, working on their own in Orange County, Calif., by invitation from the Broncos' newest quarterback.

Sanchez has been texting the back-to-back 1,000-yard receiver "all the time," Sanders said, building a working relationship and a friendship that can be the building block for on-field chemistry and timing.

"I can tell that he wants to be a leader on this team," Sanders said. "He wants to be the quarterback. He wants to be the guy."

It just needs some depth and some good luck with injuries, imo, TX. I wouldn't mind a young LT prospect in the draft, as high as the 1st round even, but I think the OL on paper is vastly improved (not saying much, but still).

I'm pulling for Sanchez to rebound and be successful for us.

I honestly believe that the root of Mark Sanchez's bad rap were due to Rex Ryan (both his mouth and his time invested in his defenses). Rex Ryan made the expectations for the Jets (and Mark Sanchez) extremely high and when they failed to meet those expectations, both Rex Ryan and especially Mark Sanchez got beat up by that fan base and the NY media. Most would crumble in that situation (a big mouth coach and the pressure to appease the fans & media).

I think he already has a great work ethic and is physically capable of being a productive QB. My only concern is whether he can grasp Kubiak's offense (fricken Vernon Davis couldn't as a TE). I'm looking forward to seeing it all unfold.

How could it not be better without Michael Schofield starting? :laugh:

They dumped Evan Mathis, Ryan Harris, and Louis Vasquez who all started. Backup T Tyler Polumbus just retired after nobody wanted him.

Addition by subtraction would tell you that it will be worlds better. Russell Okung might not be great, but he's not Ryan Harris. Max Garcia is no longer a rookie, and Matt Paradis isn't starting his first NFL season. They really liked Ty Sambrailo before he got hurt, and he might move inside to G. They picked up Donald Stevenson who is a huge upgrade over Michael Scofield.

This is the 2nd year in the offensive system. Things will be better. Even if Sanchez played as badly as Manning did throughout much of the season the offense would still be better. If Sanchez doesn't turn the ball over 19 times it will be a lot better. If the OL can block effectively in the run game they could be a top 15 scoring offense, and that's really all they need.

Owner: Texans allow Brock Osweiler to get out of Peyton Manning's shadow
By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com
March 22, 2016 8:46 am ET

Brock Osweiler is the man the Texans have identified to save the franchise. That's the implication, anyway. After passing on Blake Bortles two years ago, and stumbling their way through last season with the likes of Brian Hoyer and Brandon Weeden, the organization finally came to the same conclusion as the rest of us: Offensive consistency is impossible without a franchise quarterback.

To that point, the Texans gave Osweiler a four-year, $72 million deal earlier this month, and in the process, left a gaping hole at the position in Denver, where Osweiler was pegged to succeed Peyton Manning. But a confluence of events changed those plans, including an opportunity for Osweiler to blaze his own path in a Peyton-free setting.

"I guess the thing that really helped us is that he does like our offense, and coach O'Brien gives the quarterback a little more leeway at the line of scrimmage and all quarterbacks like that," Texans owner Bob McNair said at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton, via ESPN.com. "I think that helped. [B]And then of course he had played behind Peyton [Manning] and with [executive vice president of football operations/general manager] John Elway there [in Denver]. Their shadows were quite large. He was still going to be under that and compared to them. He has a chance to be a real hero in Houston. And we've got a good ball club so I think all those things entered into it."

McNair echoes a report that circulated in the days after Osweiler spurned the Broncos for the Texans: Playing in Manning's shadow, and the opportunity for a fresh start elsewhere, "were factors" in his decision to leave Denver.

I'm with you Buff, however, if money were the main motivator he would've given Elway the chance to match.

In fairness to Brock and Jimmy Sexton - we'd already low balled him twice. Our initial offer was low, then Sexton gave us an opportunity to bring it up once it became clear that our offer wasn't competitive. Which we did, but it was still $7 million shy of Houston's offer.

If we take our own bias out of it, it was sort of a no-brainer from a business standpoint. I definitely believe playing in the shadows of Peyton and Elway were factors - but I think $$ was the ultimate deciding factor.

And something of a bidding war escalated his compensation above the market value; a war that set a new level for the market for QBs in the NFL. That's how 1300 sq ft homes in San Jose, CA ended up costing $600k+ 10 years ago and another 300k since.
